Space to Dream: A First Post

Welcome to my new website, hosted by Siteground and created on WordPress. I have moved over most of my content from blogger but am still in the process of recovering some images – so please forgive any missing pieces!

If you previously followed me over on blogger, thank you for coming over — you will find the same type of content here from me: poetry, prose and book reviews, with the occasional book video share thrown into the mix. If you are seeing my writing (and me) for the first time, I also want to say thank you for dropping by! And I hope that you will stay along for the ride with me.

In addition to here on my website, I also also share writing over at Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads, a community of poets who are wonderfully creative. I encourage you to check out the Toads site and comment, comment comment! Here, there, or anywhere you are online — it’s important we join in a dialogue together. For readers and writers, it’s essential. To that end, I have a page titled “Writing: A Dialogue” that I invite you to share on. And you may comment on any of my regular posts as well.

And now — to end my official welcome and share a special video. A continuation of my last video on summer reading, here is a round-up of children’s series books that my kids are loving. My kids and I made the video together in two parts, with my daughter narrating the second with her picks. Enjoy!

Here is a list of books we highlighted in the video:

The Adventures of Captain Underpants,  Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants by Dav Pilkey
Fly Guy Presents Dinosaurs, Fly Guy Presents Space, There’s a Fly Guy in my Soup by Tedd Arnold
Mercy Watson Fights Crime, Mercy Watson Princess in Disguise by Kate Dicamillo
Sisters by Raina Telgemeier (Not mentioned, but we’ve also read Smile from this author)
The Rainbow Magic Fairies by Daisy Meadows (Too many choices in this series to list them all, believe me!)

Thank you for visiting Space to Dream — it’s exciting to create something new. TGIF! And Happy Reading.
